How to make bajrichi bhakri – Stepwise



Warm the water and add salt and little oil stir it well.

Add bajra flour, stir with a spoon and knead into a smooth dough.

Bajra Roti – The Dough,


Shape the dough into 2 inch round balls.

Dust some dry flour on the plate.

Start patting the ball into circle shape by using palm and finger for making bhakri.

Or you can also roll the bhakari on roll pin.

Spread some sesame seeds on bhakri.


Bajra Bhakri – Roasted on Tawa,


On a heated tawa put bhakri on high flame.

Be careful while putting the bhakri on tava dusted side should be at upper side.

Spread little water on bhakri.

Flip it and roast from both sides.

Now simmer the flame and put the bhakri directly on the flame to further roast it from both the sides with the help of hand. This technique helps bhakri to puff up nicely.

Repeat the process for the remaining dough.
